I have one from right around 1970,but I can't remember the name so I will have to go look tomorrow.
I have a toro from the 70's Dont know exact year.
I like that old Toro. We don't have any old push mowers other then a couple of years old. That pic is huge but the software resizes it on the fly if you minimize the window.
sorry about that LOL.
I made it smaller
I do like that old Toro.
70's or 80's LawnBoy with the Mag deck.
Ok,I went out and looked at the push mower and it is an old mower that Canadian Tire used to sell back in the early '70's. I don't know who made it but it has a Tecumseh engine ,and the old thing still works good.
Now the oldest push mower I have that is not running at the moment is a 1956 Lawn-Boy c-12 Iron-Horse,model 5000. The engine was built by Outboard Marine & Manufacturing Co. of Canada. It is all there and actually in pretty good condition,and I am someday going to restore it.
That's a good question. I don't use any of my older machines any more, but I have a couple upstairs in the barn that are pretty old. I'll have to go look sometime and see if I can figure out some ages.
I haven't ever used it, but I have a TORO Power-Handle. It came out in the 50's & was one motor that ran a mower deck, snow blower, tiller, etc. It's like the one in the foreground of this picture.
All I have is the mower, but, as Maynard said, "and I am someday going to restore it."
Cool looking machine.
That's interesting. It's a fantastic concept too! One engine several attachments. Of course I guess it's what we do with our GT's. Ryobi had a system like that on one of their "trimmers" too. My FIL bought one several years back with the trimmer, a small tiller, and an edger. I think that there were other attachments available too. Maybe a pole saw...I can't remember. I'll have to go over there and look.
I like the concept too, I wonder how hard it is to change around?
I have a weed trimmer that is a Troy-Bilt, my dad has some other brand. Both of them have a system called ez-link, and guess what? They interchange with each other. I am sure in the long run they are both made by the same company but it is funny.
From the little looking around I've done, It's the 4 motor mount bolts & the 2 belts. All the linkage, tank, handle, etc goes with the engine.
Well that's pretty slick then.
